  1. I had something similar happen to me...turns out the tab on the rotor got bent down too far somehow. Maybe check that?
  2. You nailed it with #1...any article on the internet you should take with a grain of salt. I found the article interesting. Do I believe everything written in it, no.
  3. Thought I'd share this article I found: https://www.motorious.com/articles/features-3/classic-cars-greener/ Pretty interesting if it's true.
  4. I've had good luck with Quick Performance out of Iowa. https://www.quickperformance.com/Ford-8-Inch-8-Ford_c_48.html I got an 8 inch 3.55 truetrac third member and a 9 inch 3.70 truetrac third member from them.
  5. Hi, this website might be helpful: https://www.vintage-mustang.com/threads/non-power-brake-pedal-wanted.1181168/
  6. I used the alternator stator terminal to trigger a relay, which I wired to the battery side of the starter solenoid. I used a fusable link between the relay and starter solenoid. There is also a lot of good information here:
  7. I have a GT Performance 14-4337 wheel. The wood is a little darker and glossy which I like. No issues with the horn button since they attach differently than the Grant ones. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/gtx-14-4337 No, it does not come with the Chevy horn button. They make Mustang and Ford ones that you can purchase separately.
  8. It's a 302 with 3.55 rear gears. With 27" rear tires, it's at 2000 rpm at 65 mph.
  9. I don't think I can legally sell them unless I removed "Ford". However, I have the word file I used to print them. Just PM me if you want it. Glad to help out
  10. It's printed on https://www.papilio.com/inkjet waterproof adhesive film media.html but any vinyl sticker should work. I just used my home inkjet printer. I used vectr.com to make the gauge face.
  11. Just to follow up on my own thread, I ended up going through the heater hose holes for my wiring. This worked since I have an A/C car and those heater hose holes were not used. I also mounted my controller in the glove box. I removed the liner so I can't store anything in there anymore though. I finished the install in early spring and highly recommend the 4R70W. It's a blast to drive now.
  12. I was in the same dilemma, so I decided to make my own using a Bosch FST-7906 tachometer. I wanted it to look somewhat stock so I made my own gauge face and added a 1966 Mustang Rally Pac center dial. I actually have it mounted to the left side of my steering column now so it doesn't cover up any of the other gauges. Total cost was less than $50.
  13. Any one else have recommendations or pictures? I appreciate the help
  14. Hi, I bought one complete assembly for my 1969 Coupe and one complete assembly for my dad's 1966 Coupe. I've only filled mine up once but it worked great. No spilling and it shut off automatically. I did have some issues with it shutting off too early but I also had the nozzle in the highest flow setting. Should not be an issue on the lower flow settings. I highly recommend this to everyone! It's so much easier to fill up with gas now.
  15. That is a great post on how he did. Thanks again! If anyone has done it this way, I still wouldn't mind seeing some pictures on a 69 or 70 if you have some.
  16. Thanks for the reply, I was thinking of putting the controller in the glovebox and drilling a hole by the shifter like you mentioned for the wires. Has anyone done it this way already?
  17. For those of you who have installed a 4R70W already, where did you mount the controller and where/how did you route the wiring from the controller to the transmission? Pictures always help, thanks!
  18. The RTX ones are finally available: https://www.dakotadigital.com/index.cfm/page/ptype=product/product_id=1221/category_id=434/mode=prod/prd1221.htm Sorry, I missed your post Grabber70Mach
  19. @nickjames138 which dash bezels did you use? They look like the deluxe ones but black instead of woodgrain? I really like the look.
  20. I emailed Dakota Digital about the RTX for the 69-70 Mustangs a couple days ago. They told me to check back at the end of September and they will have more information.
